Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.
Worldliness. Such a big word in a variety of ways. Romans 12:2 "not to be conformed to the world." One cure for worldliness is humility. Our text shows us how. It gives us ten commands to receive saving grace -- to go from worldliness to humility.
The second I want to key on, "Drawing near to God and cleansing your hands." Draw near to God is to pursue an intimate relationship with God. Cleanse your hands, is to confess your sins.
Do these things and the Lord will lift you up. Most importantly, submit your life to God and resist the devil. Apply these to your life this week and see how God can use you.
Prayer: Lord, let me submit my life to you, acknowledge You in everything that I do. Please use me as You wish that I will be an channel of Your saving grace.
